This film was absolutely hilarious. I am not a fan of romantic comedies, but this film won me over. It had so many wonderful jokes that you just wouldn't see in a movie these days, and with such a charm that you could never even dream of seeing in a romantic comedy today.
The leads were wonderful as their characters, and the performances seemed very natural. Cooper was wonderful as the adventurous, picky, and misogynistic Mr Brandon. Colbert was beautiful as the playful, tricky, and scheming Nicole, and Horton was a barrel of laughs as her money grubbing father. The entire cast seemed just perfect.
This is a truly wonderful film which a viewer can sit back, enjoy and laugh with.
